Why I get out of bed in the AM.

I have a guilty pleasure in the AM.  I love watching my DVR show Chelsea Lately on E! I love to watch it in the AM when I am folding laundry.  Sat, Sun and Mon are let downs cause she isn't on the night before and I sleep in.  I love the fact that she is a bitch and doesn't appologize for it.  My family doesn't think she is funny at all, but I have a twisted sense of humor and I think she is great.

On the show she has other comedians and they talk about stupid hollywood topics.  My favorite is Ross Mathews.  He is a gay comedian who is funny as shit.  You should check him out on twitter and on the web at he is hilarious.

Just wanted to give a shout out to Ross and Chelsea.

With a new baby on the way I have decided to do some room swaping upstairs.  Kara will get the big room which was my sewing room and the baby will get her old room.  here are a few ideas that I like.

I want to put light grey on the walls and add more bling to the room.  Make it a princess room!

Here is another idea but not too sure about green on the walls.

What do you think?

I think I have come down with a case of winter fever.  I have been looking through gardening magazines and catalogs and fantasizing about what my garden will look like.  Over the 6 years I have lived back in Iowa I have only been able to get tomatoes and green peppers from my garden.  Usually what happens is that the weeds take over and then I just mow over the whole thing.  My enthusiasm diminishes as the heat rises.

This year is going to be different, I hope.  I am going to be home more now that I am done with college.  I hope this works.  I will keep you posted when the snow disappears.
SO, I haven't written on here in a long time.  Lots of change has been happening at our house.  I am not part of the employed community.  I got a job at one of the ER's about an hour from home.  Work has been going great.  Of course I can say that because I only work every third weekend and one day in between during the week.  I don't have to drive to work five days a week or even the usual 3 days for the 12 hour shift.  I didn't want or need a full time job.

We also found out that a new Lindsay will be joining out crazy house in June.  Kara is was excited to have a little brother or sister.  She wants it to be a boy because then we will have 2 boys and 2 girls in our house.  "It just makes sense mom" that is what she told me when I asked why she wanted it that way.  I have to confess that I am also hoping for a boy, as Jeff is too I am sure. 

The only thing I am not looking forward to is that with the new addition to our house that means I have to clean out my storage room upstairs and set up a nursery.  Kara is going to get the bigger room upstairs and the baby will go into her room.  I am waiting for the first week in Feb to see if I have to paint over the purple walls in Kara's room.  Last night Kara and I were browsing for ideas for her new room.  She likes all the difficult projects.  I am not sure if I will go all pink on the walls or go for a grey color and then accent with pink.  That way when she gets older I can get rid of the pink if she wants to change the colors of her room and not have to paint again.  I will keep you updated on the progress of the new room situation.
